Detroit Lions Host Bruce Carter, Mike Pouncey For Visits

A day after Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara and California defensive end Cameron Jordan were in town to visit the Detroit Lions, the team hosted two more players on Wednesday: North Carolina linebacker Bruce Carter and Florida center Mike Pouncey.

The Lions' official site broke the news about Carter's visit and got his thoughts on the trip.

"I think everything went really well. They have great facilities, coaches are great. The Lions are a team that’s on the rise, so they’ve got everything going for them. I feel like it would be a great fit for me, but it’s not up to me to decide." [...] (The coaches) said I was a great player (and) I’ve got my head on straight – good character. All the good stuff. I feel like it was an awesome visit. I really enjoyed myself."

Carter is likely someone the Lions would be looking at with their second-round pick. He has first-round talent but is coming off of an ACL injury. Most expect him to be picked no earlier than the second round as a result, which could work out quite well for the Lions if he's still on the board when they go back on the clock.

Pouncey's visit was not reported by the Lions' official site, but he said on Tuesday that he would be in Detroit on Wednesday. He is the twin brother of Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and could be someone the Lions look at to improve depth on the offensive line.

One other piece of visit-related news is that Syracuse linebacker Doug Hogue will visit the Lions sometime in April.
